CHRIS GARCIA is one of the hottest young stand-up comics working today. His absurdist take on street and pop culture coupled with his upbringing as a first generation Cuban American have singled him out, with winning performances at the San Francisco Comedy Club Competition, the Stand Up Comedy Olympics, and the Onion's Aristocrat Awards.
DONNY DIVANIAN is like the kid at the back of the class who’s always been a mystery. Is he brilliant or crazy? Is he like the rest of us or does he transcend the ranks of normal into some echelon we mortals could only describe as “weird”? We can’t guess his story. All we do know is that he’s really, really funny.
CHRIS THAYER is a professional crybaby turned hobbyist comedian. Honestly though, it won’t be too long before his hobby turns into another successful profession. It’s because the stuff he likes, he gets very, very good at. I mean, how do you think he got to be a professional crybaby? He loves it and got spectacular at it. “Crybaby” isn’t even a typical profession. Comedy should be a breeze for him.
